ArtWalk: Mallory O'Connor & American River: Tributaries

  • Third House Books & Coffee 113 North Main Street Gainesville, FL, 32601 United States (map)

We are excited to present Mallory M. O’Connor who will talk about her novel, American River: Tributaries.

Mallory M. O'Connor's new novel celebrates the
American River’s cultural heritage.

In the mid-1800s, three immigrant families—Irish, Mexican, and Japanese—settled along the banks of the American River in Northern California. A century later only one family remains.

Set against the natural beauty of Northern California, O’Connor weaves a complex tale of interrelationships and betrayals that captures the mood and resonance of a decade that began in innocence and ended in despair.

Mallory O’Connor is a writer, an art historian, and a musician. Raised on a ranch on the American River in Northern California, she spent her childhood exploring the land along the river, and the diverse cultures that were drawn to this beautiful and historic place.

“O'Connor’s brilliant first novel weaves a complex tapestry that shows us that immigrant bigotry did not start with Trump's call for a wall. "
— Hilary Hemingway, author of Hemingway in Cuba
